Maiô Colméia / swimsuit for pragnants

Maiô Colméia
Maiô Colméia

The proposal concerns a water aerobics swimsuit for pregnant women. Its function is to follow the growth in the womb. This is possible both due to its expandable internal material , which has the elatitcity for this, and the cuts made to follow the groth in the womb.
To elaborate this idea an analogy was made with honeycombs: taking into consideration the function, structure and shape of the honeycomb it can be noticed that though honeycombs start out small in size, containing only few bees, they can increase in size and support as much as 80 thousand bees as they attain a roughly round shape with combs in hexagonal shape.
